GCI held the second CREATE online seminar on 1 July 2020. A copy of the presentation slides and a recording of the presentation is available for viewing below.
The natural fluctuations that occur in communities and community coalitions underline the importance of establishing a routine process for all partners to engage in regular reflection about coalition wellbeing and functioning. Self-review can be a powerful catalyst for growth and achieving shared goals. Collecting information that promotes reflection forms a core part of a continuous learning and improvement cycle and can help coalition members strengthen the way they work together to enhance outcomes for their community. The Coalition Wellbeing Survey was developed as a tool for use by community coalitions to review their collective practices in a systematic and replicable way. It helps coalitions gather reliable data on factors that are known to underpin successful collaborative initiatives.
Within the CREATE-ing Pathways to Child Wellbeing Project the Coalition Wellbeing Survey has been used by community coalitions throughout Queensland and NSW to measure coalition wellbeing and strengthen their collaboration. This presentation will discuss the value of using measurement tools like the Coalition Wellbeing Survey to strengthen collaboration.
